Quick intro: total newbie to Atom (1.25.0 x64) / Platform (3.5.3a8) / Arduino. Using Debian Stable with the exuberant-ctags package installed and "ctags -R " has been run at the top of the project tree.
Also, I had a halfway decent knowledge of C / C++ in a previous life as a student.
Searched for ctags here but I’m still unsure if I am having the same issues or not. From what I remember, ctags is supposed to show symbols and enable navigation to / from definition… at lease this is what atom-ctags promises.
Issue no.1) I have two similar entries in the context menu when I right-click on a symbol, slightly different spelling (“Goto Declaration”, bound to F3, and “Go to Declaration”, unbound), neither of which seems to do much. It doesn’t matter whether I activate the command from the beginning, the middle or the end of the symbol.
Issue no. 2) this is actually my goal: being able to jump from a function call to its definition. If this is merely a special case of no.1, then it also doesn’t work here. If this is something different, my question becomes: “is this at all supported?”
Thanks in advance for your help.
